A Survivor's Best Friend

Ed Bradley lived for years with leukemia, after his quintuple bypass, as we discussed earlier this week. Hopefully he had the help of friends and family when he needed them. Patients like him, with cancer or other difficult chronic diseases, can benefit greatly from help with meals, shopping, etc.
